Man City's Kompany not bothered by Mourinho's 'destiny' comments

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany insists he will not listen to remarks made by any opposing manager, particularly Chelsea's Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese suggested that City remain favourites for the Premier League title as they sit six points behind Chelsea with two games in hand.

Mourinho feels City's 'destiny is in their hands' but Kompany is not buying into the cerebral horseplay often implemented by the Blues gaffer.

"It's very simple in football, the winner is always right and the loser is always wrong," Kompany told Sky Sports.

"Unless a manager puts on his football boots and starts playing as a striker, I'm never really worried about what they can say.

"As I say, there are four teams and Liverpool is one that can win it as well. Maybe City and Chelsea have a slight edge, but then again Liverpool have just as much momentum.

"Arsenal will probably get the momentum back again when they win again, so it's a good league for the neutrals. I think it will be tight until the end."

City are currently placed fourth on the league table on 57 points from 26 matches with Chelsea six points ahead at the summit. Liverpool are second, four in arrears of the Blues, while Arsenal are equal with the Reds but behind on goal difference.
